There are a lot of amazing titles available on Netflix, both for children and adults.  I am going to be focusing on the movies for children today.  Recently I have been trying to find some great movies for my kids to watch, ones that are appropriate and meant for children to enjoy.  Netflix has been coming out some amazing movies and shows focused just for kids.

The Star

Leap

Moana

Pets

Captain Underpants

Trolls

Goosebumps

Hotel Transylvania Series

Captain Underpants Series

How to Train a Dragon Series

Those are just a small list of great movie/series ideas for your kiddos.  We love them and have found them to be quite funny.  They all make great movie night selections.

Having movie nights with your little ones are a great way to spend some quality time together and bond.  My kids love it and usually take turns when it comes to deciding who is going to be deciding on the movie title for that night.  Keep in mind there are a lot of different titles available along with educational ones also.  Take time to browse, check around for suggestions, and have fun trying new movies out.

Attention…Attention…Please.

You know as a parent privacy is hard to come by.  It is so true.  To be honest in my opinion I feel like when I make a phone call that is the time you will see my children show their true crazy nature.  It brings the maniac out of my kids!  Getting on the phone especially if it is an important phone call my kids go bananas.  It’s “Mommy I need this.”  “Mommy I want to talk.”  and so on.  Then I will have some of them even try to climb me as I am on the phone.  Yep my kids are definitely the attention speaking type.

Getting on another point I have noticed that the same behavior comes out when we have visitors.  They can’t just sit quietly or play calmly, nope, that would be too easy.  It’s like they have this initial embedded beacon that goes off when mommy is doing something or visiting with someone.  It is quite humorous in a way.

Parenthood is definitely funny, there are days that I feel like I am in a comedy show.  Kids do funny things especially when they have an audience.  There are times I wish that I could catch some of the stuff they do on camera, I would be famous.  Just kidding.  But it is true, kids are funny.  When I get overwhelmed I just have to think of the funny crazy moments and remember they are just being kids.  As an adult I feel like I have forgotten the true nature of being a kid.  When I sit down and spend time with my kiddos I get a taste of how I felt in my childhood and it helps me relate to them better.  So spend time with your kids.  Laugh together.  Make unforgettable memories.  Live life to the fullest.

A Little Funny for the Restless

Today I ran across one of the funniest life hacks hat had me on the floor laughing. The image it gave me of when I was a teenager was priceless! To be honest an image of teenagers today going through phone withdrawals is just overbearingly hilarious. The life hack quotes this:

“When punishing your kids, don’t take away their electronics.  Just take their charger and watch the fear in their eyes as they use it less and less while the battery slowly dies.”

It was just to pass up to now share!!! As a parent I have learned it is best to have an open mind and a great sense of humor!!!!

Dedication to my Grandfather

My brother Michael sent me a beautiful video that was put together by him of our Grandaddy. He passed away back in September of 2015, that is when I really cut back on my writing also.

This video shows just a fragment of the service he did for the Lord. Giving Bibles to churches and all over Bulgaria. Risking his life while working for the Lord so others could know about Jesus. We need to have that dedication, that motivation to drop everything and put Him first!

Thank you again Michael for the beautiful video!

Love at First Sight

It’s hard to believe it has been eleven years already.  Me and my husband, Billy, got married June 2nd of 2007; Personally it feels like it has been less time than that but nope it has literally been eleven years.  Can’t believe during that time we have become parents of five amazing kids which have stolen our hearts and minds lol. During those years we have gone on many adventures, we have been through a lot personally and I feel like life has just been absolutely amazing.

God knew exactly what He was doing when he placed Billy into my life.  It’s a funny story how we met, one of my favorite ones to talk about.  It all started when I was sixteen, looking for a job to be exact.  I had an interview at Hollywood video across from the mall known as North Park there in Jackson, Mississippi.  When I went in for the interview they needed to reschedule due to the Manager being called away.  At that time I was bummed but what happened next was no coincidence.  Me and my family decided to go to the mall, it was kind of a tradition for me and my siblings to wander the mall on Saturdays.  Well I went into the bookstore called B. Dalton, a smaller version of Barnes and Noble basically.  They weren’t hiring but I decided to humor myself and apply, so I did.  After that I went home and didn’t think anything of it.  The next day I get a phone call asking me to come in Monday with all my credentials for an interview.  When I got that phone call I was stunned, I went in to check it out and was hired on the spot.  A week goes by, Billy was out of the store due to personal leave, he came back and that is when I met my husband for the first time.  It was so weird because I knew there was something about him, I fell for him almost immediately.   Love is such a funny thing and honestly this is only the beginning of how our relationship began.  For the next few weeks I will be blogging about how our relationship bloomed and how love is such a precious gift.
